So happy that Kiko is now available in Noida, India! I love the eyeshadow sticks and am looking forward to get more of these now. I had also set my eyes on 2-3 lipsticks in Kiko, Spain, which were out of stock. Hoping those are available in India now! I also bought the Kiko Out of Bounds Eye Liner pen, which I loved but it got over soon. Missed it’s swatch here!

NYX Butter Gloss and Lipstick

NYX-Butter-Lipstick-and-Gloss

Since you can barely find any NYX products in Sephora, Delhi, I recently bought some NYX butter gloss and lipstick from Cherryculture.com. And because there was a sale when I ordered, I got everything at approx 35% off.

A motivation to buy from Cherry culture was also their lip balms which I absolutely love.

NYX Butter Lipstick  – Though these lipsticks are comfortable to wear and feel buttery, I have noticed that if your lips are chapped, the lighter color brings it out more. All the colors are pigmented, and the color stays put even after the butteriness goes away. Good range of colors and priced decently for $6 per lipstick.

NYX Butter Lipgloss – These staying power for these ain’t great, however they provide medium coverage along with hydration and glossy shine. The texture is buttery and smooth. For $5 per gloss, these are great value for money. I suggest to go for the darker shades as lighter color like Peaches and Cream is too milky for medium to dark skin tone.

Cherry Culture Lip Balm – Totally in love with these balms and they cost only $2. On a previous order, I had received this as a free gift and loved it so much that now I ordered 5 of these. They are buttery smooth and smell great… and these work wonders for chapped lips.

Plum Aloe Day Moisturizer and Nurturance Night Cream

Hey All! I love blogging and I have totally been missing it this last month. I know I haven’t blogged for a while, but I have tried to be more active on social media. And I hope you are following me on Facebook and Instagram.

Plum Organic Skincare

Well today I’m reviewing natural and skin care products from Plum that are Parabens, Phthalates, Prop. Glycol & SLS free. I’ve been so excited to try these since the day I heard about this brand.

Plum is an online only beauty brand. They use natural (also organic) goodies in their products and leave out bad chemicals. If that’s not a reason enough to convince you to try Plum, then you should know that their service and shipping is quite good and reliable.

I picked the day and night bestseller set which includes Hello Aloe Caring Day Moisturizer and Grape Seed & Sea Buckthorn Nurturance Night Cream. Both the products have good quality packaging and no prominent fragrances.

Price  – Day and Night Bestseller set – Rs. 1070. Day Moisturizer  – Rs.545 and Night cream – Rs. 525

Plum Aloe Day Moisturizer

Hello Aloe Caring Day Moisturizer – This moisturizer has become a part of my daily skincare routine. It’s a good hydrating moisturizer which contains SPF15. I feel happy while applying this since I know it contains good natural and even organic ingredients. I use this over my regular day and eye cream.

Ingredients – Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Benzyl Alcohol, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dehydro Acetic Acid, Embelica officinalis* extract, Glyceryl Monostearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil (and) Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Propanediol, Vegetable Glycerin**, Xanthan gum, Ylang ylang flower oil

* – ingredients from organic farming
** – made using organic ingredients

Plum Nurturance Night Cream

Grape Seed & Sea Buckthorn Nurturance Night Cream – Another cream with great  ingredients, this is rich in anti-oxidants and is meant to repair the skin overnight. I didn’t like the texture of this cream and only tried it for about a week. So I can’t really comment about it’s benefits.

The cream feels light and moisturizing to touch, however on application it feels heavy. I felt like the cream was sitting on top of my skin for hours, though I think it gets absorbed by skin overnight as my skin felt hydrated in the morning.

The texture has not put me off completely and I am willing to try the day lotion or face mask from this range.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Scholl-Express-Pedi-Foot-File

Scholl is well known for their footcare and footwear range and the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File is a great new product that has been recently launched. On the launch in Delhi, a few of Delhi’s beauty and fashion bloggers were invited to try the Express Pedi at Le Meridien.

I enjoyed my pampering session of pedicure with the electronic foot file and I was quite excited to use it myself.

SchollExpressPedi

Rs. 2850 for package which Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi and 4 batteries. You can get the additional roller for Rs. 900.

Rs. 180 for Scholl Feet and Nail Cream

So now after using it on every alternate days for 10 days, I gotta say I’m loving it. The Express Pedi foot file’s Microlumina roller head has made my feet smooth and the Scholl Feet and Nail Cream got absorbed into my feet leaving them amazingly hydrated and soft! (The Scholl Feet and Nail Cream is pretty amazing btw!!!)

Since you can remove the roller and clean or change it, I tried this on my mom’s feet and it buffed away any hard skin on her feet within minutes!! I was totally amazed by how different her feet looked!

The battery life is pretty reasonable, still using the batteries that it came with and it’s yet to slow down. Between my mom and I, it’s been used for 7 days 5 minutes on each foot.

Scholl Express Pedi is to be used on dry skin and the whole thing is not waterproof, however you can clean the roller with water.

The grip is quite comfortable and it’s easy to hold. I was earlier wondering if the vibrating motion or the weight would hurt the hand, but it doesn’t.

It applies light pressure and you don’t need to worry about damaging healthy skin. Whenever I felt a spot becoming sensitive, I moved on to different area.

I think this product is quite expensive but  if you are someone like me, it’s totally worth it!! I only go for a pedicure once in 3-4 months, but like to keep my feet buffed and clean. The Scholl Express Pedi has totally reduced the buffing effort and getting smooth feet is now super easy and it’s totally travel friendly!! .. Love, Jas 🙂

L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Lipstick Pure Rouge

Loreal Collection Star Red Pure Rouge

Everyone wants a red color lipstick that just works! And recently I have come across one of the most beautiful red lipsticks ever – L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Star Lipstick Pure Rouge by Freida Pinto.

Pure Rouge is a bright red that will work universally. The red’s not too blue or too warm, it sits perfectly in-between. I can imagine that it will work on all skin tones.

It is a creamy matte lipstick that glides on lips without any tugging. The matte finish doesnt settle into fine lines, but if your lips are dry or chipped, then wearing a balm first is a good idea.

The pigmentation of the lipstick is great and 1 swipe provides great color. I have noticed that if I swipe the lipstick on multiple times, the color keeps getting deeper.

The lipstick stays on lips for a very long time! Once set, it does not transfer much too. Though it becomes a little patchy in the center of lips, after a drink or in about 4 hours.

Price – Rs. 995. L’oreal lipsticks are definitely on the pricey side!

I say if you love red lipsticks or have always wanted one, buy L’oreal Collection Star Pure Rouge. You won’t be disappointed! I personally like it’s color and texture more than Mac’s Russian Red 😛

What are your thoughts on this?.. Love, Jas 🙂
